Wiki

Justin Wilson (born 31 July 1978 in Sheffield) is a British racing driver from England who currently competes in the IndyCar Series for Dreyer & Reinbold Racing. He competed in the Champ Car series from 2004–07, scoring four wins. He competed in Formula One in the 2003 season with Minardi and Jaguar and was the winner of the 2001 International Formula 3000 championship.

Brought up in the tiny hamlet of Woodall, near Harthill, South Yorkshire, Wilson began racing karts in 1987. During the early 1990s, he spent several years in Formula Vauxhall with Paul Stewart Racing before earning international attention when he won the inaugural Formula Palmer Audi championship with nine race wins. In 1998, he was a finalist in the McLaren Autosport BRDC Young Driver of the Year Award. A year later, he graduated to the FIA International Formula 3000 championship and won the championship in 2001, setting a record winning margin in the process.

Despite his success, his height proved a liability, and prevented him from securing a Formula One drive for 2002. He found a drive in the Telefonica World Series by Nissan, where he continued his winning ways with race victories at Interlagos and Valencia.
